Breathe, think before posting: Relationships on social media

Published by julieinspire on



A few weeks ago, a German man dumped his Kenyan wife on Facebook. It caught media attention because a good journalist must have a nose to smell news.

Now, the people who we love have the greatest potential of hurting us. We being human, have every right to get mad. This act was understandable, under the circumstances which he was claiming. She stole from him, he had every right to be angry.

Though women are known for spilling their guts on social media, it is not only a preserve of the female species anymore.


He has deleted the social media post that read,  “All friends note. After the unfortunate incidents in recent weeks, caused by the unlawful conduct before my wife Eva Karwitha, I hereby give official separation from her known. From now on, I take no liability for all her financial or other transactions. I wish her all the best for the future. But please, do not come back.”

Apparently after negatively exposing his wife on social media, spilling on to the mainstream media, they have made up. “I am very happy to be back with Eva, you can call and talk to her. About more details of our reconciliation, I choose not to comment for now”, said George, according to Citizen Digital.

It is clear that social media is a powerful tool that can help you connect with friends. It also is not a place to post things in the heat of anger. Couples fight every time. They break up and make up. So it probably would save you  a lot of public humiliation if you just stay away from social media during the time of your anger. That’s my two cents.


I write, read, laugh, sing and sometimes just observe. Many say I am silent in person and outspoken online. I guess it is a trait writers share. Welcome to my world.
